That's two no-brain guesses

I see three teams associated with notorious curses, and a hockey team with a drought. It will probably be the Blackhawks!

I go along with Kelly, but playoff systems totally suck. You can't believe how nice it was up until '69, two leagues, two first place teams go to the show. No junk like the Mets winning 82 games and knocking off Cincinnati, then go to win the series.
It's all for the money. Regardless of where the Cubs or White Sox finish, I always watch the weather in Chicago during the World Series. I've been doing this since '83 and way over half the time it is cold and rainy. Wrigley Field can be very cold in June, if you aren't in the sun. Dressing up as if you were going to a Bears game and paying an average of $400-$500 per seat
shows me a dedicated fan or someone who wanted to be part of history (or the agony of defeat). The Cubs should do it Kelly, but I hope you can hold your breathe until that final out. I will.

Rooting for the Cubbies. $400-500 a seat ?!! In the 80s used to sit in fantastic bleacher seats for Oakland A's games for $3.00. The 5 buck beer cost more than the seats and you could talk to the outfielders. Alas, they've remodeled the field and the great outfield seats are gone. Outfielders probably don't talk to you either.

If you think baseball prices are nuts, I was considering going to Chicago for the New Years day hockey game. $1500 for a lousy seat at Wrigley, nothing against the field, but I've watched hockey from left field before and it's no fun.

Donna, It'll probably rain anyway. Chicago's winters have been so erratic the past ten years, it's unreal. Lately, we have super mild January's then start to get blasted the middle of February. Last January we had two eight inch snowfalls within two weeks and both melted within two days. I think they should have the game at Wasilla Alaska and have Sarah Palin drive the teams to the game.

Sooo...Boudreaux has been a very bad Cajun man. He dies and goes straight to hell. The devil comes to visit and Boudreaux says "shoot, cher, you don't tink it's hot here? Dis ain't nothin'". So the devil cranks the heat up. The next day Boudreaux has taken off his sweatshirt but isn't even sweating. "Nothin' to it". So the heat is cranked up again, and again Boudreaux isn't phased by it. The next day the devil goes to Boudreaux' room, where there is ice hanging from the ceiling and the room is 20 below zero. Boudreaux looks sadly at the devil and says "I guess the Saints won the Superbowl, huh?"
